CASEplorations with Amy Tsuruta


We're back with another CASEplorations, this month with the very talented and coffee-loving Amy Tsuruta of Tsuruta Designs.  Here's Amy's card that we're CASEing:

Amy Tsuruta
What are the elements to CASE?  Colour scheme, white embossing, hot drinks theme, grid layout, popped-up panel, sentiment banner....

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do love my tea.  And at this time of year, I love a warming drop of Glühwein!  So, I've gone for the hot drinks theme, a nice ruby colour for the Glühwein, some icy blue sky and snowflakes as a nod to the blue in Amy's colour scheme, and a sentiment.  Because I wanted to alter the sentiment, I didn't put it on a banner.  I scribbled a border and added a slosh of colour to ground the cup.  It's not spilled Glühwein - I never spill it ;)


How will you interpret Amy's card?   Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for more CASE-ing of Amy's card, and add your creation to the CASE playground for a chance to win prizes.

  5. I've not had the pleasure of having a sip of Gluehwein - are you saying it is a tea? Or are you never spilling a drop of something else from a tea cup? Any way you serve it, Shirley this is fabulous ... and a wonderful, imaginative CASE of darling amy's darling card!

  10. Mmmmm ... gluhwein ... or vin chaud, Shirley ... mmmm ... mmmm ... that's for the drink and your delicious card! Good to hear the swoosh of colour under the glass isn't split gluhwein (eek) ... must be the reflection of that mmmmm colour! Hugs, Anita :)
